Sharp ADS1 “Capa” on AT&T Revealed as Sharp FX Plus

Remember Sharp’s ADS1 “Capa” from last month? When we first got a look at a picture of the smartphone, we weren’t quite sure what to make of it, but quickly realized that it was indeed the Capa that we were expecting to make its way to AT&T. We’re still not sure quite when that will be, but it looks like we could be getting close, with the smartphone showing up in a Walmart brochure, now taking the name Sharp FX Plus.

While it’s nice to see Sharp finding a home for its smartphones in the US, the FX Plus looks like it will be a bit behind the times when it arrives. The handset has to deal with having only a 600MHz processor, though at least it has a decent 512MB of memory. The 3.2-inch HVGA display has neither size nor resolution on its side, though at least it will help the FX Plus fit nicely in a pocket. Back in May, we expected the then-Capa to ship with Froyo; it’d be nice if Sharp had outfitted the phone with Gingerbread since then, but according to the Walmart brochure, it looks like we’re still suck with Froyo for the time being.

If the FX Plus ends up being cheap enough, it could still be worth checking out, especially as an alternative to a messaging dumbphone. Hopefully Walmart, AT&T, or Sharp will be revealing those details about price and availability soon.
